"Also, I'm surprised--but not surprised--at the less than subtle acrimony many of you have for the churchgoing folks. Lay off. You are only proving the detractors of this blog right by thumbing your nose at the problems of people whose priorities aren't your priorities. Get over it and find an answer."

lets be clear - there are people in DC who are secular and do not attend religious services. There are folks who belong to religions other than christianity and make do. There are christians who make a point of belonging to a near church where they live.

This is largely an issue, AFAICT of people who used to live in the District, who moved to the suburbs (or to other parts of the city), who still belong to a church in the city, who have a sense of entitlement about the city and their old neighborhood, and perhaps some resentment toward those who have moved in.

While paying for parking, etc may be a more realistic solution in some cases, suggesting alternatives to driving in to church does not seem that unreasonable to me.
